Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

Practical Guide for Improving Communication

John Gray

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to Earth and amnesia set in: they forgot they were from different planets.

Based on years of successful counseling of couples and individuals, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus has helped millions of couples transform their relationships. Now viewed as a modern classic, this phenomenal book has helped men and women realize how different they really are and how to communicate their needs in such a way that conflict doesn't arise and intimacy is given every chance to grow.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 26, 1993 – Psychotherapist Gray ( What You Feel You Can Heal ) adds to the growing number of self-help books that assess marital and relationship problems in terms of distinct and pervasive gender differences. Unfortunately, his overuse of gimmicky, often silly analogies and metaphors makes his otherwise down-to-earth guide hard to take seriously. Here Martians (men) play Mr. Fix-It while Venusians (women) run the Home-Improvement Committee; when upset, Martians ``go to their caves'' (to sort things out alone) while Venusians ``go to the well'' (for emotional cleansing). While graphically illustrative, the hyperbolic, overextended comparisons, particularly in the chapters that refer to men as rubber bands and women as waves, significantly detract from Gray's realistic insights.

Customer Reviews

Stereotypes abound, offers no real solutions

I am a man in a troubled long-term relationship. My female partner is reluctant to talk about her feelings, is upset when I don't offer tangible solutions to her problems, never says i love you and squirms at my attempts to be romantic and carve out time to do coupley things. According to this book, this is utterly impossible that we even exist. The roles should be reversed on every issue i stated above apparently. Alas, I find myself in a complex relationship and know many other couples who are in them too.

This book assumes that men hate talking about their feelings, that women are naturally subservient to men and will back down on an issue to placate their man, and that women often feel unappreciated for things they do while men really do not.

For some, this generic view of male/female relationships may be of some value. For us, two people with complex personalities, backgrounds, egos and feelings, this 'one-size-fits-all' of a book was a waste of time.

The definitive book on understanding relationships

This book isn't a prescription for how to fix a relationship - but it does provide valuable insight into how men and women look at relationship dynamics. And with that insight - you can better navigate the waters of the relationship ocean. Although she (he) never gave you an operator's manual this comes as close to as what you'll ever need.

Improve your understanding of the opposite sex

John Gray provides essential advice for any relationship in this book. His book provides great insight and understanding of the opposite sex. His metaphors and examples are simple enough for anyone to remember and apply to their life. I recommend Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus to anyone interested in a more fulfilling relationship with the opposite sex.
